More Research about Death
I have recently finished reading Emma Heathcote-James's They Walk Among Us: An Investigation into the Phenomenon of After-Death Materialisation. Although some careful editing could have prevented a number of spelling mistakes from appearing in the final version, I found the book to be an extremely interesting one. Written by a person who is not a medium, Ms Heathcote-James tackled the subject of materialisations in a very scientific way. As an avid supporter of scientific research, I favour the approach taken by the author. Of course, further studies are required so that we can all learn more about ourselves. As stated by Professor Peter Wadhams, a lecturer at the University of Cambridge, "Much more research is needed, and it is ironic that this, the most important scientific question of all, has the fewest people working on it and the least (that is, zero) support from scientific funding agencies" (2007, p. xix).
